in their own body, right? that's the first group that needs to be let out. [applause] >> marty, let me ask you, you're obviously part of the california district attorney's association, as we were talking before the panel began, you shared with me that your organization has previously supported a measure that mark leno brought forward to lower the punishment for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana to a misdemeanor to an infraction. in this case your organization is essentially opposed to it. what do you say to mr. adelman and mr. gascon? >> i think one of the things i want to point out is that in terms of the changes currently taking place in california's criminal justice system is that we have embarked on a very, very large experiment and that's called realignment. prison population in california is going to approach by -- or sometime next year the federal mandate of 130,000. we've already released some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. an
relapse is a fact, and it's part and parcel to addiction recovery. >> george, let me ask you, marty raisesed the point that the reason that we need felony possibilities with drug possession offenses is that we need an incentive for people to choose treatment when they are charged with a crime. do you agree with them [ >> i don't. i understand where marty is coming from. i think we have to make sure when we're treating this as a misdemeanor we do have a tool to ensure that people who need treatment are going to be afforded the opportunity and are going to have treatment. i also agree with tal, not necessarily everybody that uses drugs is an addict, and not necessarily everybody who uses drugs needs to have treatment. but having said that, people that we often come in contact with will be people who have a severe drug abuse problem and generally they also have a mental health issue problem, there are often housing problems, employment, many other problems, and that's the population we deal with often. and i think that figuring a way to have an intervention so that services are availab
. martin marty from the university of chicago, i don't know if it's included in this particular class or interview that we're going to see here shortly but he makes the point that he's met, you know, the dalai lama, he met mother theresa. he's met great religious leaders and the ones who really are deep in their own faith can make that common cause. can really be enriched from other people and learn from other faiths and so we want to keep that point up front. i mean we haven't touched from anyone in the class. perhaps some folks in here have no real particular religious concerns and you might be here to get three units of humanities credits, which that's what we're about. we're a university or you may be here for a number of different reasons but still as we move through this fascinating journey, looking at different beliefs and believers, it's a good thing to keep in mind and we'll touch on that. we brought up some great points on why it is, you know, that we should study religion. you know, why it is we might this is a good thing to be doing? you know, we're not wasting our time he
from steubenville, ohio. what's the latest this hour? >> reporter: hi, marty. there's a big protest going on on the steps of the jefferson county courthouse. police estimate around 300 people or so. this is not the first time people have been staging protests. their main beef, as they see it, many of these people here, they're coming here for different causes. some are calling for justice for jane doe, the alleged victim in this case. many other people here are not happy with the way they feel investigators have been looking at this case. they don't think some of them that police have done a thorough job of investigating it. they allege that there has been a cover-up. now, authorities and the city insist that there has been no cover-up, that they are doing a thorough investigation and that the people that have been charged will have justice done at a trial coming up next month. but there are a lot of people here on both sides. they're staging a noisy protest here. and many of them feel that the city hasn't done enough to get down to the bottom of this. we'll all find out as that tri
, what do you think of all of this? is that an issue of freedom of speech here? >> well, it is, marty. i'll tell you something, we're reminded constantly that in some cases there's a fine line between the good guys and the bad guys. this police officer was so out of line, i mean, the guy's got to be terminated. the panel on the court of appeals said basically you could not have any other interpretation of what this was. his explanation was i thought they needed help so when i saw that middle finger sign sent to me, i thought hay needed help so i pulled them over. then he ends up arresting the guy. that's outrageous. this police officer should be terminated. they should sue him and hammer the police force for this. this was a horrible stop. no need for this. it could have been a traffic accident. a lot of problems could have happened from this. the cop's got to suck it up. it's not a big deal. move on with life. much more important things in life than getting the bird thrown at you. >> averying you're growning ani the background. >> i don't think you need to fire the cop, but i think -- >
in califoia to support senator leno's direction. why is that? >> i want to thank marty for being here. even though we disagree, i think it was really important to have the point of view of the 57 other elected d.a.'s in the state. i think it's important to understand in our dialogue so marty, thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> marty is someone i respect a great deal and he has been involved in public safety for a number of years and doing very momably serving the l.a. city attorney as well as his current position. actually, for me this has been a journey, it's not like a light switch went on yesterday. i have been involved in public safety for about 30 years. i have seen the war on drugs from the ground up. i have seen it as a police officer, young police officer walking, foot beat in south central and east l.a. i saw the revolving door, the impact that that revolving door was having in many communities and as i rose through the ranks, i began to take a different look at the way we dealt with crime and the way we dealt with public safety and as i evolved throughout the years, i came
of california. thank you for your support. [applause] >> tal, i want to go back to the question that marty posed earlier, which is in effect this idea that in order to incentivize people making the decision to seek treatment that the fear of a felony conviction or possible state prison sentence could play a positive role. you talk to a lot of people charged with crimes who are trying to make the decision of what decision to make, what is the primary motivation you see coming from them. how do they decision make on dispositions related to drug possession as a felony? >> i think that for a lot of people it does have to be a personal decision and they have to come to it themselves. i don't think they necessarily are thinking about whether whether or not they'd be convicted of a felony or misdemeanor. i will also say that sometimes you'll meet someone in county jail and they're ready to get treatment, they're ready to get help and because of the lack of resources, they have to sit in county jail and wait for a bed to open up or wait for there to be an opportunity for them to access treatment. and on
. and susan, what's happening there now? >> well hi, marty, as you said, it's been a month since the tragedy happened. and literally, there are signs still around newtown, in tribute to all of the victims, including for the 27 people killed, including 20 children, 6-year-old and 7-year-old boys and girls among the dead. and here at newtown high school, at this hour, a public forum is beginning, to decide what to do about sandy hook elementary school. you remember that the children are attending another school now. but again, what to do with it. do you destroy that school? do you put a public memorial, a memorial in its place? or perhaps a combination of those ideas. and that's in part what this public forum is about. to talk about ideas. marty? >> yeah, that's a very difficult discussion to even imagine they're having in that community. how are the people recovering? how is that town healing? >> well, you know, people are saying a lot of things about the healing process, marty. for example, we spent some time at st. rose of lima catholic church where nine of the children were parishioners. a
to his own opinion. >> thank you. i have to say that, i want to think marty for coming here. he knew he was coming into this. i want to repeat. i am in the minority in the association. i think concerning this item, it is important for me and all of us to recognize there are ballot points of view. if we're serious about developing solutions that work for all of us, we have to entertain those points of view and tried to reach consensus. that is the only one that we will create a workable, sustainable solutions. all we're doing is spinning our wheels. my reason for being here is because i truly have come to the conclusion that it is not only based on years on the ground operationally but years of working on development of public policy, working with state governments and justice and lower in corp. -- incarceration and working with other people. a variety of settings. i do not believe that incarceration has taken us where we need to be. i believe the war on drugs has been a failure. when we institutionalize people over extended periods of time, we take low-level offenders in the early stage

, marty, i think at this stage, people would be surprised if there would be a consensus. i mean, it's so early and so fresh in everyone's mind. after all, 27 people were killed during that terrible mass shooting, including -- including several children ages 6 and 7. and at this meeting, we heard a range of opinions about what should happen. this lasted an hour and a half. i was struck by the number of sandy hook parents who were here. one of them said this was such a horrible thing that happened that they should just tear down the school and instead put a memorial there. some saying the children are too frightened to go back. another parent countered that children should be strong and not hide from adversity and that they should be helped through this, that a school should be rebuilt on that site but perhaps also a memorial as well. but another parent saying, you know, we have to be sensitive to all different ideas. in the end, many of the parents said it ought to be the sandy hook parents whose children still go there, that they should be able to get together and let them weigh in first

arrowing considerate approach they've taken. i want to express my deepest thanks to marty dempsey for his leadership in all the service chiefs who have been working on this issue and as a group, came forward with the recommendation we are implementing today. our men and women in uniform have not asked for more than a leaders in uniform. i fundamentally believe our military is more effective and success is based solely on ability and qualifications and performance. when i look at my grandson and my granddaughters, i've got six grandchildren, three grandsons and three granddaughters, i want each of them to have the same chance to succeed at whatever they want to deal. life as we are now, there are no guarantees to success. not everyone is going to be able to be a combat soldier. the everyone is entitled. by committing ourselves to that principle, we are renewing our commitment to the american values are servicemembers stay and die to defend. as secretary, i go to bethesda to visit wounded warriors to bury our dead there is no distinction that's made between the sacrifices of men and women i
